Marjorie Nantz created the Johnny Nantz Memorial Endowed Scholarship in memory of her husband. Marjorie and Johnny met at JBU. Johnny was able to attend JBU because of receiving a Broadhurst Scholarship and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies in 1970. Marjorie also attended through the help of a scholarship and earned a Bachelor of Music Education in 1970. Johnny’s passion was sharing the love of Jesus locally and around the world. As a pastor, he faithfully followed The Great Commission, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 19-20, NIV). Johnny led mission teams in Brazil and Kenya and served on the International Mission Board.
